Head of Volyn Regional State Administration Borys Klymchuk has handed the keys to apartments to two members of Ukraine's national Olympic team, Oksana Vaschuk and Yulia Ostapchuk.

Ukraine's world-class master of sports in freestyle wrestling (72 kg), Vaschuk, received a one-room apartment, while Ukraine's world-class master of sports in freestyle wrestling (63 kg), Ostapchuk, got a two-room apartment, reads a statement posted on the Web site of the Ukrainian government on Wednesday.

The regional governor noted that the Volyn athletes had already begun to prepare for participation in the next Olympics.

"We are betting on such sports as freestyle wrestling, rowing, cycling, weightlifting and boxing. Particular emphasis will be placed on the development of women's volleyball. To realize these plans we [need to] have skilled children, good coaches, serious financing and modern sports facilities. Such an approach will yield positive results," Klymchuk said.

Right, just like in times of fucking Soviet fucking Union, "We pay you shit, but we will give you an apartment" Tell that pib Ynukovich that instead of spending money on a bullshit Language Law he could invest in to sport so that our Athletes could regain their former glory. Ukraine was always in the top 10 as far as medals, now we are hardly making a 20.
